Survey Description

In 1985, a vegetation survey was carried out in the Star Lake area, Saskatchewan, located about 115 km northeast of La Ronge.  This orientation survey was undertaken prior to any mine development and therefore prior to any possible contamination of the forest by mine workings.  Twigs and leaves of Labrador tea, river alder and dwarf birch were collected as well as black spruce bark and twigs.  An interpretation of these data is published in Modern Exploration Techniques, Saskatchewan Geological Society Special Publication No. 10.
